Big Car Audio Reference Thread

Recommended Posts

OK, instead of me pinning about 68,415,976 topics about stereos, I figured to put up a thread with basically all the references I go off, if I can't answer questions on my own knowledge.

If there is anything I have left out.. by all means, either shoot me a pm or post up here and I will ammend the thread ASAP.



I hope this proves to be of great benefit to all those curious about sound in their vehicles.

scroll down and you can design the shape by click and drag. then when you have the shape you can use the second link to work out the volume in litres or cuft....

i found these easier than the box calc prog because i already knew the cuft i needed and just neede to design the thing...
